Now That's Personal Responsibility

Yesterday's USA Today had an interesting story about Japanese public reaction to their hostages taken in Iraq. Rather than engage in a national hand-wringing, accompanied by yellow ribbons and the like, the general public reaction was a collective "tough shit." Basically, the trio knew what they were getting into and had no one to blame but themselves for being taken. Wonder what it would take for people in this country to react the same way?
